MALIBU, Calif. - It's a quiet week in Malibu due to the Thanksgiving holiday, but several of the Waves' teams will be in action elsewhere. The women's basketball team visits Oregon tonight. Later, the men's basketball team heads to the Great Alaska Shootout and the baseball team goes to Taiwan for the Formosa Cup.

Austin Mills of the men's basketball team opens the show, and interviews take place with Nikolas Skouen (men's basketball), head coach Steve Rodriguez (baseball) and Aaron Brown (baseball).

Here's a look at the week's events:


Thursday-Saturday: at Great Alaska Shootout (Anchorage, Alaska)
Thursday: vs. Green Bay, 6:30 p.m. PT / 5:30 p.m. AT
Television: Pepperdine's game against Green Bay will be shown live on the CBS Sports Network. If Pepperdine wins on Thursday, then both Friday and Saturday's games will also appear on the CBS Sports Network.

The men's basketball team's 4-1 start is the squad's best since 2004-05, but the Waves will be tested this week at the Great Alaska Shootout. Pepperdine finished in third place at the inaugural tournament back in 1978, and that included a win over a 10th-ranked Indiana team. This week, Pepperdine opens against Horizon League favorite Green Bay, and then will play either Ivy League favorite Harvard or Denver, which was picked to finish second in the Summit League. Stacy Davis leads the WCC in scoring (19.6) while Brendan Lane leads the conference in rebounding (10.4) and blocks (3.8).

Bria Richardson continues her career year, leading Pepperdine with 17.8 points, 4.1 assists and 2.4 steals per game. The junior guard has already set career highs in all three categories so far this season. The Waves are closing out a month of November in which they will have played six of their seven games on the road. They will come home to play three of four contests in Malibu to start December.
